When our world seems to be in great turmoil, and peace seems to evade us, it always helps to turn to the Holy Scriptures for consolation. Psalm 91 has always been a source of peace.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
My God, in Him I will trust.
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler,
And from the perilous pestilence,
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler,
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
He shall call upon Me and I will answer him;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My Salvation.
(Verses 1 – 8, 15-16
